The Urban Craft Center Quilts For Haiti
The Urban Craft Center (UCC) in Santa Monica is putting together a series of collaborative quilts followed by a charity raffle to benefit the victims of the Haiti earthquake. All proceeds will be donated to Partners
In Health, a non-profit organization that has been providing much needed medical services and supplies in Haiti for more than 20 years.
Volunteers are needed to lend a hand in sewing these quilts to help this very important cause. “We really hope to see a lot of volunteers come out for this, quilting is such a fun way to raise money for people truly in need,” said Angharad Jones, owner of
